DENNIS MCLEOD
May 2008

Glen Ellen, CA—Dennis is a painter living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is a graduate of Virginia Art Institute and earned his BFA degree from California College of the Arts in Oakland, California in 1980. Most recently his work was included in the exhibition \”Rembrandt to Thiebaud: A decade of collecting works on paper\” show at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco.

His travels to India, Japan, Morocco, among other places has been a great source of inspiration in his work. Over the last several years his work has centered around the use of line and drips as well as other forms of mark-making to create meditative abstractions which examine the fundamental ideas behind chaos theory, order and repetition. Working with a pared down, mostly monochromatic palette, McLeod focuses on the physicality of his technique building layer upon layer to create an almost tangible perception of space and volume. Dennis McLeod is represented by Traywick Contemporary, Berkeley, CA.
